Studio 19 Gallery Closing Party and Big Sale!

You may have heard through the grapevine that we have closed the Art Gallery arm of Studio 19 Wollongong. This decision was not made lightly but the fact is Nina and Caz are moving on to other things. Do not fear though as we are keeping the lovely creative loungeroom and will continue to host creative events such as the Poetry Slams and some live music and it will still be available for hire. We just aren’t open days unless we have an event on or by appointment only.

So to thank everyone for supporting us we are throwing one last big party to celebrate and well, let’s face it – we love a great party and any excuse is a good one.

Come down to Studio 19 for a good old fashioned BLUE LIGHT DISCO (80s outfit optional) where we will dance the night away. BYO. All ages welcome.

Tix are $10 and you can get them here:




ALSO!!!! As we are downsizing we are putting up some of our RETRO FURNITURE and bits and pieces FOR SALE. Get a ticket to the party and get first dibs before we have our big sale on Saturday and Sunday (11am-3pm). Furniture, books, cds, clothing, kitchenware, and if you ever thought about buying some of cazzie’s artwork now is your chance – make us an offer!

“24″ Film Photography Exhibition

“24″ Group Photography Exhibition at Studio 19 Wollongong

Exhibition dates 19th March – 5th April

Opening night will be Friday 21st March 6.30pm – 8.30pm

ABOUT “24″
The object of this exhibition is to present 24 photographic shots in one day of an artist’s life. Exactly one 24-exposure roll of film is shot in a 24-hour period with the entire roll of film being exhibited. So many photographs are edited and perfected within the digital era that we wanted to show that using film is about a process, experimentation and not knowing what you will get until it is processed.
